Daisy aimlessly stroked the faux suede material of her coat, enjoying the velvet-like feel against her fingertips.Glancing at her watch, she sighed.Another five minutes before the school bell was due to ring and the wind was starting to whip up; tomorrow she must remember her gloves.Why did Autumn always catch her on the hop she wondered, thrusting her hands deep into her pockets and wiggling her toes inside her knee-length boots.

Glancing a little distance along the pavement, Daisy noticed a number of mothers crowding around a tall, very handsome, dark-haired man.Probably in his early forties, he was wearing a pair of scuffed blue Levi’s, dark brown leather boots and a thick black jacket.Daisy felt that his body language was suggesting he really wanted to be left in peace whilst he waited for his child.Alas, it seemed that the women didn’t share her interpretation of the situation.Daisy remembered seeing a similar event take place earlier in the week, watching in dismay as a gaggle of women so obviously flirted with him.It struck her as rather desperate; he had been giving off fairly clear signals that he really wasn’t interested on that occasion too.

The man suddenly tapped his pocket, murmured an excuse and walked away from the group, lifting a mobile phone to his ear. As soon as the women had lost interest, the man moved to a more distant location, put his phone away and quickly glanced around.Watching from afar, Daisy smiled at the realisation there had never actually been a phone call but instead, he had merely used an imaginary call as an escape route.Unexpectedly, the man glanced up and their eyes met.Daisy felt a rush of blood to her abdomen as the man, maintaining eye contact, shrugged and then smiled in a slightly sheepish, self-deprecating manner. Daisy immediately dropped her eyes in embarrassment at being caught staring at the stranger, horrified that he might think she was also trying to come onto him.The next time she looked up, the man had been approached by somebody else who was trying to engage him in conversation.

 

That night, Daisy’s dreams were rudely gatecrashed by that tall, dark sexy stranger.Somehow, she found herself naked, tied spread-eagled to her bed and entirely unable to escape. Looking quickly around her bedroom, Daisy caught sight of the stranger standing by her bedroom window, carefully observing her.Although fully dressed himself, the way his gaze was devouring her body was carnal.

As their eyes met, Daisy found that she couldn’t tear herself away.Gulping, she felt both excited and terrified as blood pumped simultaneously to her breasts and her core.Maintaining eye contact, the stranger smiled in a slightly lopsided way and slowly shrugged off his black jacket.As it fell to the floor, Daisy inhaled sharply.Underneath, he wore a clean white T-shirt, beneath which was clearly a glorious body, beautifully muscled but not excessively so.

Biting her lower lip, Daisy felt her cheeks flush with desire as a bolt of electricity seemed to pass through her body.With their eyes still locked, the stranger kicked off his boots and socks, pulled his T-shirt over his head and moved his large, strong hands down to his belt.Once he’d dispatched with his belt, slowly and deliberately, his hands dropped further down to unbutton his jeans.Daisy involuntarily licked her lips in response, her heart beating wildly.As his jeans dropped to the floor, he kicked them aside.Daisy thoughts were sharply refocussed when she noticed a substantial bulge in his boxer shorts and a no-nonsense look on his face.

‘I can’t do this,’ murmured Daisy, pulling down against her restraints. ‘I’m really inexperienced.’

‘Then we’ll take things very slowly.Why don’t you just let me take the lead?’ he murmured, walking towards her.But the closer he moved to her bed, the fainter he became until Daisy found herself escaping from the arms of Morpheus.Feeling more than a little lightheaded, she awoke to a brand-new day.

 

The clattering noise of the school bell rang out across the grounds and, moments later, a wave of chattering boys flooded out through the doors, clearly delighted that the weekend was upon them.

‘Mummy!Mummy!’ Above the general din, Daisy heard her son’s voice immediately, her whole being fine tuned to his unique tone.

‘Hi Thomas!’ grinned Daisy, bending down to tightly hug her son.‘Did you have a good day, darling?’

‘Brilliant!’ he replied.‘I made a bowl in pottery.And I’ve got a new best friend called Zach.Please can he come round and play tomorrow?’Daisy laughed at his effervescent enthusiasm.

‘I expect so, my love.Shall I speak to Zach’s Mummy now and arrange it?’

‘He’s just there!Zach!’ bellowed Thomas at the top of his voice, causing a number of heads to turn in surprise.A blond boy with piercing blue eyes and a wide grin waved back at them, then started to run over.

‘Zach, this is my Mum,’ said Thomas with a hint of pride in his voice.

‘Please to meet you Mrs Fitzpatrick.’Daisy smiled, unused to hearing such politeness from an eight-year old.

‘I’m very pleased to meet you too, Zach,’ said Daisy. ‘Is your Mummy here?Thomas wants to invite you over to play tomorrow.’ Daisy thought she noticed an almost imperceptible sadness pass across the little boy’s face before he answered.

‘No, my Dad’s is,’ explained Zach.Before Daisy’s eyes had even begun to swivel around to follow the direction in which Zach’s finger was now pointing, she knew. Zach’s father was the handsome stranger who was entirely responsible for an exponential increase in the number of extremely erotic dreams she had been experiencing in recent weeks.

As Zach’s father began to approach their group, Daisy could feel her forehead start to tingle, whilst blood rushed to her abdomen. Looking up at his face, Daisy locked eyes with the man, unable to tear herself away.As he stopped beside them she stood gazing stupidly at him, astonished by the clarity of colour in his cornflower-blue eyes.

‘At least close your mouth,’ a stunned synapse told her brain.‘You look like a gormless idiot!’Slowly, Daisy did as she was told.

‘Nick Jackson,’ murmured the man smoothly. ‘Pleased to meet you.’

‘Daisy,’ she croaked, accepting his firm, proffered hand.As her bare skin touched his soft, warm hand, Daisy felt a zing pass through her body which culminated in her nipples tightening.Quickly releasing his hand, she tore her eyes away, not understanding why this stranger was having such a profound effect on her body but afraid that he might read the desire in her lustful gaze.A fresh wave of shame passed through her mind, as memories of her dreams came flooding back.

‘Daddy,’ said Zach, thankfully breaking the silence.‘Please can I go round to Thomas’s house this weekend?’

‘Of course.But only if that’s OK with you Daisy?’ asked Nick.

With horror, Daisy suddenly realised they were all looking at her for some kind of response.It was currently taking all of Daisy’s concentration to ensure that she simply remained standing, despite her shaking legs.She wasn’t sure she could multi-task to any greater extent than she was already doing.

‘Fine,’ she replied, in a voice which sounded higher than normal.‘How does two o’clock on Saturday afternoon sound?’

‘Brilliant!’ said both the boys in stereo.

‘If you’re sure?’ asked Nick, with a questioning glance.Daisy nodded.

‘I’m sure.Our address is 28, Bramble Lane.We’re just five minutes around the corner.’

‘OK, thanks.Shall I take your mobile number, just in case?’

‘Of course,’ replied Daisy, her voice steadying slightly as she reeled off her telephone number.Nick tapped it into his phone and then smiled at her.Daisy’s own phone buzzed.Looking down, Nick had sent her a text which simply said ‘Nick Jackson.’

‘Great, we’ll see you tomorrow then?’With a final smile, Nick picked up his son’s school bag which had previously been discarded on the floor and put a hand on his shoulder.‘Come on young man.Home time.’

 

The following day, Daisy woke early and then proceeded to spend all morning in a state of heightened anxiety, counting the hours until Nick would arrive on her doorstep.Over lunch with Thomas, Daisy barely touched her food.Her appetite had been suppressed by the swarm of butterflies which seemed to have taken up temporary residence in her abdomen.

The front door bell rang at a couple of minutes after two whilst Daisy was upstairs in her bedroom taking some deep calming breaths.She heard Thomas clatter down the stairs, wrench open the front door and noisily greet his friend.His obvious excitement made her smile briefly, in spite of herself.A quick glance in the mirror made her grateful that today was not a bad hair day, as so many had been recently; her messy bob hairstyle showing off her dark, shiny locks quite adequately.Taking one final deep breath, Daisy descended the stairs, well aware of how ridiculous her behaviour was; she seemed to be acting like a teenager, rather than the thirty-something year old woman she actually was.Her natural demeanour was perhaps on the shy-side, but never before had she physically responded to a man as she had to Nick and her reaction both confused and alarmed her.

As Daisy reached the bottom step, she was passed by two boys who raced past her, heading for Thomas’s bedroom to admire the train set which had been carefully constructed earlier that morning.Zach yelped a brief greeting as they passed.Looking up, Daisy felt her chest flush as she observed Nick casually leaning against the front door frame.

‘Hi,’ he said confidently.‘Thanks so much for having Zach.’

‘Our pleasure,’ said Daisy shyly.‘When would you like to pick him up?’

‘Five-ish?’

‘If you want to make it six, then I’ll feed them both dinner first,’ suggested Daisy.She was rewarded with a broad smile.

‘That’s a really kind offer,’ said Nick.‘Thank you.But if you need me to return before then, just text and I’ll be here.’Daisy stood there nodding, unsure of what to say.

‘Well, see you at six then,’ Nick continued, slightly tilting his head before making his way out of the front gate.As Daisy slowly closed the door, she caught sight of him climbing into a large, shiny black Range Rover.If only she had the brazen self-confidence to immediately send him a text to explain how much she needed him to return right now.

 

‘That was the best meal ever, thank you Mrs Fitzpatrick,’ said Zach later that evening.Daisy giggled at his obvious sincerity.

‘Call me Daisy, Sweetheart.And it was only a cottage pie but you’re more than welcome.Any time,’ she added.‘Now, can I interest anyone in chocolate Smartie cake for pudding?’

Shouts of “Me!” followed her around the kitchen, as she distributed clean plates and placed the afore mentioned cake in the centre of the table.She had just finished cutting them each a slice when the doorbell rang.

‘That’ll be your Dad,’ said Daisy glancing at the clock on the wall and making her way out of the room.‘Oh dear, we are running a little late.’Pulling open the front door, Nick’s large silhouette was obvious through the darkness.Nervously, Daisy scrabbled to turn on the porch light.

‘Sorry,’ she muttered, failing to meet his eyes. ‘We’re just having pudding.Would you like to come in?’

‘Thanks,’ said a self-assured Nick as he firmly closed the door behind him and followed her through to the kitchen.

‘Do sit down.Would you like some cake?’

‘Wow!That looks good!’ exclaimed Nick, smiling at the boys and ruffling Zach’s hair. ‘Would you recommend it?’

‘It’s AMAZING Dad,’ replied Zach with chocolate butter cream smeared around his lips and chin.‘Mrs Fitzpatrick is THE best cook ever!’

‘How can I refuse then?’ replied Nick, glancing across at a blushing Daisy and managing to hold her eye contact for just a second longer than strictly necessary before focussing back on the boys.

Conversation around the table was surprisingly easy that evening and Daisy enjoyed the time the four of them spent together, devouring the cake and chatting amiably.However, it wasn’t until much later, once their visitors had left and Thomas had gone to bed, that Daisy was able to finally relax.Collapsing back into the sofa, she took some deep calming breaths to encourage her heart rate to finally return to somewhere near normal levels.That night in bed, she tossed and turned as Nick once more gatecrashed her wild, restless dreams.This time, his soft, gentle hands ravished her body in ways she had never before experienced.
